Everyone needs a winter coat, and what’s to say your furry friend doesn’t need one too?!

By now you probably know that Ariane has a furry baby called Bonobo. Bonobo is a Pomeranian Cross and he is around 5 years old.

He loves greeting visitors to the studio with a bark(!), and Ariane equally loves to dress him up. Over time he’s been a dinosaur, a DJ, Santa, worn a ‘leather’ jacket and dungarees and most recently a Unicorn… the list goes on

This is the short course will take you on a journey for creating a winter coat – the perfect foundation for you to evolve your very own collection of garments. This garment can be made for both your cats or dogs and is a lovely short course to show how magical it can be to create garments other than for humans
